Thank you, Gwyneth
Yes indeed, I'm thanking Gwyneth Paltrow for dinner last night. I subscribe to her blog GOOP, which "curates the best of lifestyle to help her readers save time, simplify, and feel inspired". Hmm... Let's just say, I occasionally find a recipe I want to make. My quest to back-off from baking desserts nearly every day in this new year (shall we take bets on how long this lasts?), has me sourcing recipes that focus on salads, ancient grains, and in this case... lentils.
When I actually sat down last night to my dinner of lentil "meatballs", I ate them on top of brown rice (orzo would also be nice accompaniment) with a very good drizzle of basil oil and alongside seared broccoli. Don't shy away from salting the "meatballs". They will definitely benefit from it.
